"Groot Handelsgebouw" Top 5 Page for this destination Architecture, old Tip by sachara

Architecture, old, Rotterdam: 8 reviews and 14 photos


Favorite thing: The Groot Handelsgebouw or trade centre was opened in 1953. It was the first post-war building, buillt at the place of the former zoo. It was the biggest post-war building in those days and a landmark in post-war Rotterdam.

The building is at your right hand side when you come out of the Centraal Station. I visited a conference somewhere in the building. It's a convenient location, when coming by train to Rotterdam.

Fondest memory: When I stayed in the Westin Hotel many years later, I had a nice total view at the Groot Handelsgebouw from my hotelroom and discovered it has a terrace at its rooftop.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
